Tiziana Paci lives and works in Pesaro, Italy, teaching fashion design and painting. In her thirty years of experience, she has invented original methods for design in general and for the improvement of drawing and painting techniques for fashion sketches and figures. All this material has been organised into a few manuals which interestingly combine both educational and artistic aspects. Thanks to their innovative nature, effectiveness and wealth of images, the texts have been translated into many languages and used in schools in Italy and abroad.
Ms Paci loves to express her artistic creativity in various industries. Her paintings have been exhibited in solo and group shows. For the theatre, she has designed and created costumes for comedies, lyric operas and dance performances. She’s led university courses for fashion designers for the Fashion Design & Disciplines Department at the University of Urbino and for the Experimental Design Centre of Ancona. Her freelance collaborations include those with fashion houses such as Laurana (jewellery), Angel Fashion, Equipe Style and Alberta Ferretti, while for the humanitarian association "Peace Games Uisp", she took part in a craftsmanship programme for women’s associations in Palestine.
